Newcastle United's search for a striker is set to go to the wire.

The relegation-threatened club has already signed Andros Townsend, Jonjo Shelvey and Henri Saivet in this month's transfer window.

e have an update on the club's progress in the transfer market.

Yesterday's news was dominated by the arrival of Townsend and the club's 6-0 defeat to Sunderland in a practice game at the Stadium of Light.

And we ask if the behind-closed-doors game really mattered – and reveal the team the club put out on Wearside.

Townsend, signed from Tottenham Hotspur in a £12million deal, also has given his reaction to his move to St James's Park, while head coach Steve McClaren has also had his say on the deal.

Finally, which long-serving defender will quit the club today?
